Iron Maiden Eras

How many eras do you think the band had? How do you divide them?

Personally I divide the group's history in 3 eras which correspond to the 3 different singers and I also subdivide the Dickinson era into 4 subdivisions.

So it would be

Di'Anno Era- The beginnings with a punk influenced sound

Iron Maiden (1980) Killers (1981)

Dickinson era

  • Classic Heavy Metal Albums

The Number of the Beast (1982) Piece of Mind (1983) Powerslave (1984)

  • Classic Heavy Metal with Progressive sound and use of synthesizers.

Somewhere in Time (1986) Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988)

-Return to roots with a more Garage sound

No Prayer for the Dying (1990) Fear of the Dark (1992)

Blaze Era

The X Factor (1995) Virtual XI (1998)

  • Fourth Dickinson era with a definitive Progressive sound and long epic songs.

Brave New World (2000) Dance of Death (2003) A Matter of Life and Death (2006) The Final Frontier (2010) The Book of Souls (2015)

What do you think?
